At St Catherines Dental Practice, we understand how important it is for you to be fully informed and confident in every stage of your treatment. We therefore always ensure that our patients are aware of whether they are receiving dental care under the NHS or privately.
We provide every patient with a personalised written estimate, itemising all costs for your treatment. This will be given to you before any treatment commences. If for any reason your treatment plan changes you will be kept fully informed of any alterations in cost and treatment risks and benefits.
Payment is required at each appointment. For some more complex treatments a deposit will be required. We accept cash, debit and credit cards.

Missed appointments are very wasteful of clinical time and prevent other patients from accessing appointments. Please let us know as soon as you can if you are unable to keep your appointment.
To help you remember your appointment, we offer a free text message and email reminder service. If you would like a reminder of your appointment by text or email, please let the receptionist know.
If an appointment is missed, please contact the practice as soon as you can. Missed private appointments may incur a charge or your deposit (if paid) may be lost
NHS missed appointments and late cancellations – if appointments are repeatedly missed (on more than one occasion) or cancelled late, we may no longer be able to offer NHS treatment.
Please contact the reception team to discuss your circumstances as soon as possible
